This year’s percussion/jazz concert was a blast. Highlights include special guest, Nat McIntosh (of Youngblood Brass Band, Sotto Voce Tuba Quartet and Dallas Brass fame), who was featured on Beat-Boxing Sousaphone, and a special premiere of Brad Ralston’s transcription of Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #2, Movement 3, featuring Wando’s very own Andrew Kilby. Combine this with some Latin-themed music, duets, new works for percussion, and the band may even throw in a Grammy winner.
